Jon Cryer and his wife, Lisa Joyner, sat down for a reading on Long Island Medium, during which host Theresa Caputo contacted Joyner's parents, leaving them in tears.
Joyner, 49, lost her mother and father before falling in love with Cryer, but the hole they left in her life is still there.
"My father was my everything," Joyner says in a preview of Sunday's episode. "We had the same sense of humor. He was my proponent. He was always proud, and I was daddy's little girl."
During the reading, Caputo was able to determine that Joyner's father died somewhat unexpectedly due to health issues.
"He was in the middle of a lung transplant," Joyner confirms.
Joyner says that doctors informed her that her father's health was quickly deteriorating only hours before he died. Sadly, she was out of town and unable to make it back in time to say goodbye.
"Your father says, 'Even after all these years, you still remember me with those tubes down my throat," Caputo reveals. "He says, 'I do not want you to remember me in that way.'"
"Seeing him with those tubes down his throat was not the way that I wanted to remember him," Joyner recalls. "Him telling me through Theresa not to remember those times just makes me feel like I'm with him again."
In honor of Joyner's parents, she and Cryer started a charitable foundation bearing her mom and dad's names. Caputo assured the couple that Joyner's parents have seen and appreciate the help that their daughter and her husband have provided in their names.
"It was really painful to not think that they knew him and who I had decided to share my life with," Joyner said. "Knowing that they do know brings me a great deal of comfort."
The Long Island Medium special, live, two-hour event airs Sunday, March 6 on TLC.
